my new old suitcase

I looove yard sales, flea markets, estate sales and auctions, because you never know what treasure is hiding there waiting to be discovered.  Look what I discovered at our church's last yard sale.
 
The moment I saw this suitcase, (on a Wednesday) I fell in love with it.  So much that I had to hide it until the sale on Saturday.  Hubby just laughed at me, he's used to my eclectic tastes.  Which mostly means that nothing in my decor actually matches. LOL.
It's like a hard cardboard (not plastic and not wood) with that clear plastic handle.  The locks still work too.  So I brought it home then had to decide how to show it off.
I though I would keep it on this hat dresser that I scored at an estate auction down the street a few years ago.  (Hubby knew he was in trouble when I called him and told him to bring down the truck).  I even thought I would use it to showcase the vintage doilies that I inherited from my grandmother.  But I wasn't crazy about how it looked.
 
This is where I decided to keep my new case.  Tilted on the side.  I like it.  And Owen likes that fact that now my vintage Fisher Price garage is eye level and ready for play time.  Hmmmm, I wonder where I ever put my small vintage carry on case that I got from my great-uncle Pete?  It would look great here too.  So, what family heirlooms or vintage items do you show off in your home?
Be blessed,
Debbi
